Only some of the numerous memories from our Guest Books over the past years:


Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us. Good luck with your B&B’ing.” John & Tricia - (OUR FIRST GUESTS)


We have felt more than ‘at home’ with Lorna & Richard. We felt cared for and thoroughly at ease. We will return.” Mabel and Les (And they did, and are part of our local community now!)


Thanks for your compassion and prayers. This was truly a wonderful surprise for us.” Deanna and Kevin


We had a lovely stay at Kent Manor Guest House. Lorna & Richard’s hospitality was most gracious. Both went out of their way to be helpful, several beautiful breakfasts, pointed out sightseeing marvels, chatted with us as if family, and even drove us to the Airport at 4:30 in the morning (Yes! 4:30 a.m.) when the taxi service we had ordered did not appear on time. Their attention and kindness is a marvel! Of course, we shall return. Thank you so much!" Walter & Mulve


“The peace of your home has been a refuge for me during this stressful time. As compassionate and thoughtful hosts, Lorna & Richard, you’ve been such a great support – I’m forever grateful for your kindnesses and caring. I look forward to returning to Kent Manor and new found friends. Sincerely!” Gail


To Lorna & Richard who served as a family for me during my first visit to Canada – my new home, when I moved from Israel. And then to my family too upon the start of our new life in B.C. We will always remember Kent Manor as our first home and Lorna and Richard as friends and family. Good luck to you and God bless you all.” The Kones Family. (It’s over six years now and YES! we are part of each others’ family and have been there for each other no matter what time of day or night!)


Lorna & Richard: Thank you for being YOU. The balcony was great to sit and talk to my daughter. It’s been a wonderful visit for us. We enjoyed stepping out of the rat race and for a few days just took life as it was meant to be. You do have a lot to be thankful for, as we do too! Thanks for the great weekend. Our best to you!” Linda & Heather


“It has been a wonderful experience staying with you and sharing ideas about life. I have appreciated your kindness and openness and understanding, and I have learned a lot from my stay here. Thank you for sharing some of your life with me and allowing to have an opportunity to understand or look into your world. And thank you for helping me to gain confidence in myself to face the world and a new life and to make some decisions about where I want to live. I will miss you and your friendly pets – give them an extra pat from me! Take care and until we meet again, God Bless and thank you!” Andrew


“I will never forget Kent Manor as it was there that I reunited with the baby boy I gave up for adoption 30+ years ago.  Lorna, thank you for sharing the ‘snapshot’ of what you saw in both of us as we met in your front hallway … Yes! I should have given you a camera so I could have a picture of that moment in time.  Thank you for being there for me, Lorna & Richard, as this has been a very emotional, yet beautiful, time in my life.  I will come back.” Jubilant Mum  (And she did the following year with her new husband … to meet her son and his family.)


You made our first B&B experience a wonderful one! We couldn’t have found a better place to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary and take a relaxing break from our precious little girls (smile!). The room was beautiful, the breakfasts delicious, and the hospitality/visits a blessing. Thanks, Lorna, for the ideas of how I might get back in touch with ministry work. All the best to you and your family.” Ron & Bev


“We are blessed by our weekend here. May God continue to bless you and this home. Maybe we’ll see you in China or Sri Lanka some day!”  The Johnson’s  (And we did go to Sri Lanka on a ‘mission’ trip … China: as the door is opened unto us.)


Hope, Faith and Love. And the greatest of these is LOVE. Lorna & Richard, Jesus’ love pours through you both.” Catherine


We enjoyed our visit to White Rock and Kent Manor. As you know, the Lord enabled us to meet a couple who came from Northern Ireland two years after we did. “This was the Lord’s doing and it was indeed marvelous in our eyes!” It is great to meet the “Lord’s people” as we travel, and to be warmed by the fellowship of Saints. May the Lord continue to bless you in your witness for Him.” Jim & Margaret


Dear Lorna & Richard – Thank you very much for your warm hospitality, prayers and times of sharing. Mother and daughter are going home today more relaxed and tranquil after our week’s retreat. It was a pleasure to share in the joy and happiness of you both becoming grand-parents to precious Georgia Emily. Wishing you a lifetime of peace and love with your cherished family and friends. Sincerely,” Cheryl & Margaret


Dear Lorna & Richard. Thank you for a wonderful, relaxing stay in your beautiful home. Eileen and I both needed a time to decompress and we were able to do that here. You have a true gift for making a home an oasis and we needed that! Thank you.” Carl & Eileen


Our visit was more than I had hoped for – peaceful and pleasant and so enjoyed your lovely home. I will remember your prayers for a long, long time – so special that we will see you again. Thank you both.” Dorothy & Rhonda


It was truly lovely to relax again in your beautiful home and garden with such wonderful hosts. We were able to wind down after a trying (but successful) visit to Jean’s injury lawyer and exam for discovery. Thank you so much for all your loving kindness. May God bless you both.” Eric & Jean


“I have had the pleasure of staying at the Kent Manor Guest House on numerous occasions. The house and gardens are beautiful. The kitchen looks over the beautiful yard which attracts many birds. In the morning I enjoy watching the many birds feeding while I enjoy a wonderful breakfast. What makes my stay even better is the hospitality of Lorna and Richard. They are warm, loving and very friendly hosts and make their home feel like yours. I tell people it is my home away from home. I highly recommend staying at the Kent Manor Guest House.”  Carol  (She has stayed with us many times and will continue to do so …)


Thanks for being there for me when I arrived in B.C. / Canada from Australia. Thanks for helping me find a job and for being the home and family I missed. Thanks also for the advice and everything you did for me. I will keep in touch.” Jay


Thank you for a lovely visit. You were a large part of my healing time. Thank you Lorna for being a sister and friend – I will keep in touch.” Sally (And she sure does and will be back!)


“Here on business – but have found a lovely home away from home. This is my first visit of many and have been made to feel very welcome. I will be back!”  Claire  (And she has been back and will be back many times over many months.)


Lorna (with a heart besides it)), thank you for helping me practice ‘humility’. Thank you for your gift of open heart and open home. You are perfect as you are.” Linda & Grace


“Thank you for stating who you are in your advertising. It was so special to spend our wedding night at Kent Manor.”  Tyler & Jessica (The newly weds that have history here!)
